Yamaha MOX8 - Please help.DESPERATE!!!!!!

by Jazz
(Bklyn NY)

I have a problem and I'm hoping that someone can help me. I have the Yamaha mox8 Keyboard. And when I try to

the keyboard and turn it on I get this real loud popping sound in the speakers when I try to turn it up. Almost asked if my speakers are just not enough to carry it.And when the volume is turned down very low, it almost seems as if there isn't a problem at all. So as a result, I thought that I would try using the headphones. Thus, I went through three sets of headphones and it's still the same. I get more of the loud popping sound when I go to the performance levels as oppose to the regular voicings. Which keeps me from being able to turn up my sound. And we all know that's not a fun way to play.

Possible Capacitor NEW
by: Linz

I read somewhere a Yamaha guru traced this to some capacitors near the output stage. That is over my pay grade ... Help

Same Problem with MOX6 NEW
by: LM

I have the exact same problem with a Yamaha MOX6. I had it in storage for 2 years. Fired it up the other day and WHOA ... pop and crack city. When I turned the volume down under 2 or better yet 1 1/2 the popping cleared up. The popping came through all the outputs and the headphones too. I cleaned all the jacks and plugs with contact cleaner.

It this possibly a wall wart issue or something more serious on the boards. I have encountered others with this problem. Unit is dead to me if I can't trun it up a little more.

Any help would be appreciated.
